THE NEW CREATION IS A DIVINE PERSONALITY

1 Corinthians 15:47-48

The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

When you are born again you are not a mere person anymore. You have received the exact life and nature of God. It is important for you to know that not everybody and not any creature is privileged to have God's life and God's nature and to be initiated into the order of God by the new birth. So when you are born again, you are a special kind of person. You are a divine personality. There is no longer anything natural about you. You come from above and so you are divine.

In 1 Corinthians 2:14 Paul described the natural man:

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned.

The natural man is natural. There is nothing divine about Him. He is a mere man, subject to the elements of this world. This is the man who is not born again. Then in 1 Corinthians 3:1 he describes the carnal man.

And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

The carnal man is the man who is divine but doesn't know he is divine and so lives like a natural man. But the new creature is actually a divine personality. Being born of God, there is nothing natural about you anymore. It means you don't follow the natural order of life. You don't walk by the natural laws of life anymore. You walk by the divine order and the Word of God!

The Bible says in 1 Peter 2:9

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

We are of a kingly lineage. A peculiar people who are not of a natural order. We are born of a divine God therefore we must be divine. The new creature is born of the divine substance of God's Word in the divine presence of the Holy Spirit. You've been ushered into a supernatural life. In everything you do your results must be supernatural because you are a divine personality. When divinity lays their hands to do something there are supernatural results. Glory to God! Don't walk with your head down and shoulders slouched, walk like the divine personality that you are and respond to situations as a master of life! (John 17:14; 3:31)

We are divine because we come from above. That's where we were born.

The opening verses say: as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. We are heavenly divine beings because Jesus is divine and heavenly. That's what that means. That's why the Bible says in 1 John 4:17

... as he is, so are we in this world.

You're divine. You're somebody special! Live the divine life.

DECLARATION: Having realized that I am a divine personality in Christ I live the divine life fully. I express the divine life of God. I am of a peculiar race of divine persons in human bodies. I have supernatural results in all I do in Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen

And what does this have to do with having fun?

Or not needing drugs and alcohol? I don't need them, either, but I have never felt the need to turn to the bloody bible!

If you read the rules of EP, they say quite clearly that religious preaching is not allowed. Or maybe you think the rules don't apply to you, as you have a divine right?

Why are we plagiarizing the book of fables?
